Brister was blessed with a very remarkable sense of eye-hand coordination and won many clay and live-pigeon shooting tournaments. I definitely recommend this book to anyone that wants to improve your hit/miss ratio on targets or game.

Shotgunning: The Art and. has been added to your Cart. Bob Brister was a rare combination of field hunter, competitor, and writer.

Bob Brister's book is a classic! Anyone who shoots clay or live targets should read, heed, and literally devour it. I have been shooting clays for years, yet I learned something new on virtually every page. This is an older book and the styles, cars and so forth reflect that. But what Mr. Brister says is as relevant today as it was when written. I heartily reccomend it!

I have not finished this book yet but I am learning a lot from it. The book does seem to be dated a bit but the information in it all valid information and data. For someone like me which has been a gun enthusiast all my life but never owned or used shotguns, this book is a great way to get a knowledge of shotguns. I purchased this boot because I have become interested in Sporting Clay shooting and have gotten to the point that I want to own a shotgun for the sport instead of renting and wanted to know much more.

Bob Brister's excellent book, "Shotgunning: The Art and the Science" is a shooting classic. Brister was truly ahead of his time, and his work is as relevant today as it was during the '70's.
In fact, it is not uncommon to find repeated references to work done by Brister by many of today's shooting authors. Through a combination of intuition and hard work, Brister dispels many popular misconceptions of the day by applying science to a sport that has long relied on theories based on a tin can and a fence post.
If you have ever wondered what happens when you pull the trigger of a shotgun, read this book. If you are at all interested in the shooting sports, make this book your next. If you already own it, you know what I'm talking about. You will be reading it for years to come

This book is an American classic and should be in every shotgunner's library regardless if the reader is a competitive clay shooter, a waterfowl hunter, or an upland bird hunter. This work is very strong on shotgun ballistics and does a very effective job of debunking folklore and myths regarding the capabilities of shotguns and their cartridges. Bob Brister, who sadly passed away in June 2005, was extremely qualified to write this book. He was the shooting editor of FIELD & STREAM magazine for many years and one of the finest all-around shotgunners in the world. Brister was blessed with a very remarkable sense of eye-hand coordination and won many clay and live-pigeon shooting tournaments. Visitors to his home were often in awe at the sheer number to trophies he had won over the years. It is not unusual for respected gun writers of today (Alex Brandt, John Barsness, John Taylor, Michael McIntosh, and, I believe, Tom Roster) to mention Brister and/or this book in their columns or in their own books -- deservedly and properly so.

SHOTGUNNING: THE ART AND THE SCIENCE gives the reader a concise but thorough, factual, and realistic look at shotguns and shooting that is written in language that is easy for a non-technical person to understand. For this book, Brister patterned thousands of loads to try to get to the bottom of what really does work and what doesn't in regards to shotgun shooting. Brister did this, in large part, with a fourteen foot patterning board pulled by car (driven by his devoted wife Sandy), and he clearly demonstrated the effect of shot stringing. (Brister showed that on a fast-moving target the pellets at the front of the shot string can have a significantly different impact point than those at the back at various yardages.)

One thing that needs to be remembered is that Bob Brister wrote this book in 1975 (it was published by Winchester Press the following year) and some of the shotgun loads he used are no longer manufactured but he did speak about steel shot which is important today to many shooters. It is too bad that in the thirty years after the initial publication of this book and his passing that Brister did not do a revised, follow-up second edition to reflect the new loads that have since come on the market (the various non-toxic loads in particular) as well as new shotgun barrel technology and chokes. Still, SHOTGUNNING: THE ART AND THE SCIENCE more than holds up to the test of time! Its conclusions and points have not diminished at all and should be part of the knowledge base of every serious shotgun shooter. As such, I highly recommend this book to all. (Note: I did see the so-called second/revised edition of this book at a local bookstore. From what I can tell, it is merely a reprint and not a very good one at that -- the print and pictures and not as sharp and clear as the original. I would opt for a first edition, used copy if I were a purchaser today.)

Fantastic resource for learning how & why a shotgun shot does what it does. Different oz of shot with different chokes and charges result in very different results... you may not be getting a modified or full pattern with a modified or full choke.. it all depends on how much shot (7/8 oz, 1 oz, 1 1/8 oz) you're using and what kind of shot it is (basic lead, hardened "magnum" lead, or something else).

This book allowed me to put some science behind my "gut instinct" in shotgun shooting, ultimately resulting in far better trap shooting scores, consistently scoring 23 and higher round after round.

Well written and full of FACTS! Yes, FACTS. verified by testing and analysis. There is a lot of information about a lot issues related to shotgunning. Since I am new to clay shooting, (sporting clays, skeet and trap), coupling this book with others has made my library well rounded.

Excellent... A bit dated, but the theory and application are still fully useable today.
Great read for those in clay sports as to why things happen the way they do with shot, chokes, powder charges.....physics in plain English.
